Dayton Audio PT2C-8 Planar Tweeter
Is this item the same as 6" Cinema Ribbon in the Sunfire CRM-2? Bob Carver mentioned Sunfire negotiated production rights for the first two years after which the item would be sold elsewhere, specifically Parts Express.
Answering my own question: A very likely yes, Comparing the photos to the CRM-2 they look identical.

Does anyone have any thoughts about using four of these in a line source config with two 10" acoustic suspension woofers crossed over at 5000hz. It seems that would create a subdued midrange, which is what I like.
These will work well for a line array type application with that crossover point, although without knowing anything about the woofers it is impossible to say how it will sound. Usually crossing a 10" any higher than about 1500 Hz is a bad idea for off axis response.

Thinking of using either 4 of the dome silkies or 2 of the planars (per ch.) for a line array project. Any thoughts?
planars are typically a little better suited to line array applications as they behave like lines by nature so using multiples just extends that. Domes need to be spaced as close together as possible and still are limited by the top end by the distance you can space the drivers.

Hi Would like to use 9pcs of the Dayton PT2C in a line Array. How to hook these up to get 8ohm ? Are these exactly the same units that Bob Carver use in he,s speakers?
You will have to wire three sets of three together in parallel and then wire the three sets together in series. This will yield an 8 ohm overall load. Unfortunately I do not know if these are the same units used in the Carver speakers.

Is the power handling 80w RMS for the tweeter itself or for the full system?
That is for the tweeter alone, assuming a high pass filter is used at 3kHz LR2 or higher.
